'Twice Upon A Time' Season 1: Release date, plot, cast, trailer and all you need to know about Netflix's upcoming French drama

Losing love is an experience that is considered a singular struggle. While most consider winning back their ex through conventional methods, heart-broken Vincent is offered a supernatural path to happiness. With a box without a bottom in his possession, Vincent Dauda is in search of a second chance at undeniable love in this French drama, 'Twice Upon A Time.' It's a simple love story that holds on to purposeful suspense until the end of all four episodes.

Release date

Netflix stated that Season 1 of 'Twice Upon A Time' is coming to the streaming network on December 19, 2019.


Originally titled 'Il était une seconde fois' follows the story of Vincent Dauda, who is trying to pick himself up after a breakup with his ex, Louise Arron. A supernatural intrusion, a package that was not ordered, shows up at Vincent's door. Still grieving, this mysterious package allows him to revisit his time with Louise. Given the option to time travel to the moment before their break-up, Vincent is on a quest to get back the love of his life. The question is, will he win her back?

Science fiction and otherworldly properties call for an emotional yet romantic adventure in this French drama series. The show takes the idea of intimacy and the quest of love to a relatable note — a lover in desperate need to re-kindle a lost love. While most love stories end with reconciliation, a marriage or even kids, this show leaves more room for interpretation of the complications of a relationship.

While the course of his adventure continues, fans are left to wonder between reality and the supernatural — a consequence of a wooded cubed box.


The complex adventurous character of Vincent Dauda is portrayed by Gaspard Ulliel while his ex-girlfriend Louise Arron is played by Freya Mavor. Ulliel, a French actor and model, is known for his role as a serial killer, Hannibal Lecter, in 'Hannibal Rising' (2007) and for playing the role of Yves Saint Laurent in the fashion guru's biopic 'Saint Laurent' (2014).
